Ernest Parton was the younger brother of Arthur, in whose studio he spent two winters.  However, he received no instruction in art from regular masters or in any schools.  He was elected a member of the Artists' Fund Society of New York in 1873, contributing one work each year to its sales.  In 1873, he traveled to Europe for the purposes of spending a few months mainly in Great Britain, but, meeting with success in London, he decided to remain, exhibiting at the Royal Academy and elsewhere.
